Description


This magnificent antique George III sterling silver samovar has a plain urn shaped form supported by a spreading circular pedestal foot onto a plain square base and four bracket style feet.


The large body of this impressive antique Georgian samovar is plain and embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved marital coat of arms* surmounted with the crest of a griffin's head erased charged with two chevronels.


The upper rim of the body is encircled with a band of applied reed decoration.


The anterior surface of the body incorporates a fine and impressive spigot accented with applied reed decoration, incorporating the impressive original fan shaped handle.


The samovar is fitted with a pair of reed decorated narrow loop handles with impressive bifurcating leaf decorated upper terminals.


This impressive Georgian silver samovar retains the original plain waisted, domed hallmarked push fit cover surmounted with an impressive sterling silver urn style finial.


The surface of the cover is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved aforementioned crest.


The lower section of the plain pedestal foot is encompassed with further reed ornamentation and supported by four impressive bracket style feet.


* These armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of James Burkin Burroughes (born 16th March 1760 died 30th November 1803), of Burlingham Hall, Burlingham St Peter in the County of Norfolk and Christabel Negus (born 1765 died 23rd January 1843), the daughter and heiress of Henry Negus, of Hoveton Hall, in the County of Norfolk. James and Christabel were married prior to 1791.

Although, the Burroughes family had extensive landholdings both in their home County of Norfolk as well as the neighbouring County of Suffolk for several generations, the family came into the possession of Burlingham Hall and its surrounding estate through the marriage of James’s parents, Jeremiah Burroughes (born 1728 died 7th December 1767) and Diana Burkin (died 2nd December 1764), youngest daughter and co-heiress of James Burkin, of North Burlingham in the said county. Read this items heraldic identification report.

Condition


This antique Georgian silver samovar is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The applied decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved heraldry is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the base and part hallmarks to the sleeve of the cover are all very clear in keeping with age and location.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Georgian silverware.
